    Just got this email:

    "Replacing Michelle

    At the top right hand corner of Page 17 of the New York Post of January 24th, 2009 , was a short column entitled "Replacing Michelle" in the National Review "The Week" column. So here it is, word for word, as it appeared:

    Some employees are simply irreplaceable. Take Michelle Obama: The University of Chicago Medical center hired her in 2002 to run "programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment, staff diversity and minority contracting" .

    In 2005 the hospital raised her salary from $120,000 to $317,000 - nearly twice what her husband made as a Senator.

    Oh did we mention that her husband had just become a US Senator? He sure had. Requested a $1 million earmark for the UC Medical Center, in fact. Way to network Michelle!

    But now that Mrs. Obama has resigned, the hospital says her position will remain unfilled. How can that be, if the work she did was vital enough to be worth $317,000?

    Let me add that Michelle's position was a part time, 20 hour a week job. And to think they were critical of Blagoyovich' s wife for taking $100,000 in fuzzy real estate commission.

    My thoughts: How did this bit of quid pro quo corruption escape the sharp reporters that dug through Sarah Palin's garbage and kindergarten files?
    Unbelievable!


    I hope this is forwarded so many times that the media will HAVE to cover it."



    Now the funny part. I went to the NY Post site, and seached the archives, could not drag this up.

    Hmmmmm.......

    Maybe they could transfer her over to Walter Reed. Plenty to do there I'll bet.

    Vote 'em all out, agreed.


    Indiana will be hurt worse than any state by Cap'n Trade...but our two Senate bozos are for it, anyway.


    There's two a*sholes who'll never get my vote again...one Democrat, one Republican. You can have both of 'em.

    Like my old Grandaddy said if a Politician is not crooked when elected, he will be when he comes out of office.
